Former actress Nichelle Nichols is heard screaming for her life in a new video obtained by Atlanta's CBS46 News. The 86-year-old Star Trek icon is in the midst of a battle with her son over her estate.

Gilbert Bell says he is Nichols' longtime friend and manager. He claims her son, Kyle Johnson, has bad intentions. He provided the station with video of a meeting with Nichols.

In the video, Nichols who suffers from dementia, is seen looking over documents while discussing her son's request for conservatorship over her estate.

She says, "I didn't give permission to have conservatorship over me. I didn't know what he was doing."

Nichols adds, "I'm the boss of me Gil, he's not the boss of me."

That's when Johnson enters the room and says, "Mother, we are going home."

Nichols is heard screaming "Help! No! No! No! You get your hands off me. You're trying to get rid of me."

The video was filmed on April 23.

Johnson told CBS46 his mother doesn't have a manager, but he declined to comment or deny allegations made against him.

Sources with the Los Angeles Police Department tell CBS46 they are investigating allegations of elder abuse.

Nichols, who is Black, made history when she shared an onscreen kiss with Captain James Kirk (played by William Shatner) just one year after the U.S. Supreme Court deemed interracial marriage legal.

    She was at a comic convention in 2016 so I am sad to hear that she's suffering from dementia. I truly hope no foolery is afoot. People with wealth nearing the end of their lives brings out true evil.

  • CCW47

    This is my close friend friend, she has a lot of protection.

  • DroneRivers

    I'm glad she has a friend who seems to be watching her back. Elder abuse makes me so mad. Stan Lee suffered it too.

  • Bashi22

    Your own children will betray you that why never depend on children to take care of you when you are old. Please have a great plan I have witnessed this same theory within my family.

  • Kanyade

    heart-wrenching to hear this. mercy. i shouldn't have listened. my God. my heart bleeds for her. terrible, terrible situation to be in.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    I hope everything is on the up and up and not as things seem. Dementia is quite a struggle.

    He better leave Lt. Uhura alone.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    This broke my heart. I pray for this family as a whole. Before leaping to conclusions that her son has ill intentions, there needs to be a complete and objective investigation. A parent with Dementia is a difficult situation to navigate. Your parent as you know it has gone away and you're left dealing with a person who sees you (the child) as a complete stranger. This is sad on so many levels. This woman is an icon. I pray they resolve this and leave this woman's legacy and dignity intact..

  • Moon Lee

    If she has dementia this is a classic normal reaction. I would watch non family? Who released this to media??? Management 5.0 ?

  • blue skies

    WOW

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Thank you!!!because why was he recording her discussing legal documents? She has dementia she may not even recall doing that I feel he was going to use whatever she said to contest her will or whatever. I did and internship at a nursing one time and we were trying to help change this lady and get her into bed she had a BM on herself so I was assisting in trying to help clean her she started screaming saying the other lady was trying to rape her or kill her then she hit the lady mind you we both were students we had never seen this lady a day in our life. She screamed the entire time we cleaned her and changed her bed and dressed her. Sometimes when ppl mind go bad those are the reactions you get.

  • Victorious82

    This seems to be a classic sign of dementia to me. They can be very paranoid and suspicious of those around them.

    This one chick I know, her mother in law swore up and down she was stealing from her, would scream and carry on just like this. It was not so.

    This lady’s friend might be playing on her condition to gain control and get whatever money that she has. Especially if that friend is YT.

  • Yoni7

    I pray if ANYBODY is really hurting her, that they get it back 10-fold. However, judging from this audio, she just doesn't want to be bothered.

  • Trace da Ace

    OMG....this is so heartbreaking....my great aunt suffers from dementia....and it got to the point we had to put her in a home for her safety...she would roam around with just a t-shirt on....curse like a sailor for no reason...pee and poop all over herself....would not take a bath...would not allow us to help her....its just sad....you never know what is going on with a person with dementia.....I pray that she has somebody in her corner that is protecting her.

  • Malai

    She not even deceased and his entitled ass sitting there arguing with HER over HER SHIT?! ?His old bum ass need to get a JOB! At this very moment, she could outlive him! That’s just how life works! He need to be careful!

  • Topic Influencer

    Im tired of these abuses against elders. GET YOUR WHOLE LIFE TOGETHER

  • Ni Ni

    Not saying she is not being abused, but this sounds like a familiar story in Hollywood: Star nearing the end; manager starts coming around causing conflict with star & family; manager ends up making financial decisions (securing his bag); family left destitute. ?

  • WhoKnew

    I listened to the audio and it was heartbreaking to listen to. I have two relatives with Alzheimer's/Dementia and once it advances pass a stage 4, I have noticed that's when they start to not trust anyone including people they use to trust and they want to fight you. Like physically go to blows with you. My mother-in-law had it before she passed away and my son and I went to visit her in the hospital and her stuff was showing and I tried to close up her hospital gown while she was lying in bed and she swung on me. My son had to hold her back. Then when my son asked if he could have a kiss and a hug she swung on him. Just beyond sad.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This is boiling me chile .... you know how I feel bout my elders ....... whew shyt .... let me get out of here

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    What's wrong with folks ....... sweet lordt!!!!!! Chile

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Not her stuff was showing. I want to laugh at that description. I understand what you meant. And it really is a sad disease. My grandmother had it. She never became violent. I don't know...still a sensitive topic for me I think.

  • Ni Ni

    I'm scared just thinking about my mom aging. She's mean now; i know she's gonna be worse when she gets older (shes in her mid 70s). I dont have patience as it is.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    either way its abuse and I hate it ....... so sick of the abuse ugh!!!!!!!!! Periodt .....

  • Ni Ni

    So true.

  • Malai

    It sure does! One of my mom’s friends was a millionaire at the time of her death.. she had left me and several other people money.. do u think I or the others got it? NOPE.. cuz her so called “friend” ripped all the checks up and had her sign and transfer all her funds over to her account..because she was so weak from the illness, she couldn’t do anything about any of it... the woman sold her home that was worth $500,000 for $150,000 and basically gave her car away to her daughter.. just took over everything as she was dying from cancer.. so yes it does bring out the worst in people.. my mom’s friend had several dying wishes that she wanted honored but the friend didn’t follow thru with any of it..

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Dementia is a funny disease. This situation could be true...OR her mind could be turning on her. I don't know if anyone will ever know the real truth.

  • Malai

    That’s soooo sad!!! The way the disease deteriorates the mind is so frightening! Our mind’s are so precious!

  • WhoKnew

    If your mom develops dementia as she gets older you are going to need all of your strength and MORE than enough patience. They will try you but they don't know better at this point. I visited a relative who also has it and she threw a slice of pie at me because I asked to throw it in the trash when she was finished. She said you don't tell me what to do and then wham! She almost hit me in the face with that pie but I ducked.

  • WhoKnew

    Yeah, her stuff was showing and they are super suspicious of anything you say or do. You pretty much have to try to keep them calm.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    It really is no joke. Went to visit a relative in the nursing home and as soon as I got off the elevator he was walking down the hall in his depends diaper and nothing else. No shoes, shirt, pants...nothing but his depends drawers. After I took my head out of my hands, I ran down the hall to get him and took him back to his room and got him dressed. ?

  • Kayke

    Makes you question the intentions of the “manager”.

  • B.Loveitt

    Beam me up Scotty...???

  • WhoKnew

    Your mom and aunt really should have told you nana had dementia and then you could have been better prepared. I don't know if it happens just because you get old but I'm trying to keep my mind sharp now so that when I get older hopefully it won't happen to me. I do crossword puzzles every day as a form of "mind exercise".

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I don't think they knew completely .... they just brushed it off as she getting old etc .... Ma Bee always be forgetting .... shid ..... naw ..... I told them that was something else ..... and yes it was a wake up call .... lawd

  • Ghost

    I wonder if she has any other children or relatives. If so maybe they will get involved! She knows what conservatorship is and she’s not ready for it to happen. This is sad...

  • WhoKnew

    Oh okay. In that case yeah you gon need something cuz it will drive you to drink trying to deal with them and keep them calm because they're nice one minute and will flip on you the next.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    I can’t judge this just yet. Only because I am currently experiencing a dementia stricken elder in my life. Elder won’t take medication or baths. Won’t change clothes even. Doesn’t trust her own children although they’ve been caring for her for years, BUT her dementia has progressed so rapidly that she treats most like villains. It’s just so hard and an uphill battle. She wants to control everything but has so little control over anything. It’s difficult to witness.

  • NewNew

    My heart goes out to you. ??

  • Renee26

    Giggles although it ain't funny... My aunt had a habit of getting naked and wondering off

  • hottlanta

    I heard the tape she is doing fine. She had no problem reading those documents n knowing what conservatoship meant. She is in sound mind n body. Funny as hell he touches her n the camera is off n he talking in a calm voice to make her appear as if she is the aggressive crazy one. Thats white folks 101.

  • Ni Ni

    lol

  • Coy little wink

    ?

  • Guest

    Yeah, I am not listening to this audio. This is so heart breaking. I hope the people around her have good intentions. We also need an update on B. Smith. Did that reality show her husband was pushing ever come to fruition?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    for some reason da politics get em lit chile

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    That must be the thing with dementia .... walking around free or something.....

  • hottlanta

    Gurl dont get me started on bsmith where her husband olé dirty musty dusty balls come before his wife ?

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    As long as her coin isnt being SQUANDERED BY SOME laying in wait greedy advantage taker and they're is no fishy money missing business and she is clean fed and not hurting herself or anyone, LEAVE HER ALONE... Folk think when elders are up in age they automatically are losing it and don't know how to manage!!! LIES, LIES, LIES...I KNOW SOME SENIORS IN THE MID 90's and are just fine and don't want for nothing at all but for someone to just call and check on them.

  • NewNew

    Yes, it's like with severely autistic children. They like to run off. Mother always told me not to feel guilty if she gets dementia one day and I have to put her in a home. She said it's a full time job to watch them and that so many old folks go out wandering in the night during winter and are found frozen right through. This happens up north and makes me sad every time. What a way to die. At least in a home they are trained to deal with them and they lock the place up tight at night.

  • Floriduhh Evans

    My prayers to you and yours ?

  • Ghost

    Yes! I would like an update on B Smith! Haven’t heard anything more about the reality show...her fans were NOT ready to see her exploited...smh

  • IAmLegend

    This is a hard one to call. I know from experience that people with dementia are very difficult to reason with. They live in their own reality but often sound completely sane and believable because what they are saying is real to them. They can go from one emotional extreme to another almost instantaneously. They often become violent and treat loved ones like enemies. The paranoia that comes with dementia makes it worse. The son may not be the best caretaker but that doesn't mean he's trying to harm her. I hope she has other family that can help to make sure she's properly cared for. Dementia is always worse on the caretaker than it is on the patient. It's a daily struggle and emotionally draining.

  • Renee26

    Must be

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    This is one thing I'm scared of... to get to that age one day and start developing dementia. Basically that makes you a prisoner in your own body. I would rather die at 70-75 in my right mind, than to live well into my 80's and have Alzheimers or some other form of dementia.

  • IAmLegend

    Don't be fooled. A person with dementia can appear to be of sound mind but they are the complete opposite. If she is in the early stages of dementia, her mind is starting to alter her reality with paranoia and fiction and she doesn't even know it. For example, they will swear to you that their car was just stolen and give a full account of how it happened but the car is sitting right there in the driveway the whole time. If she suffers from sundowners, that means her mind will be even more confused as evening approaches and that is when the screaming and violence usually occurs. Dementia is so devastating and often missed or undiagnosed until something severe happens.

  • IAmLegend

    Getting her put on Namenda might help tremendously. Consult with her doctor to find safe and effective ways to possibly mix it into her food. I'm not entirely sure if its safe to crush Namenda but there may be other options. My heart goes out to you and your family.

  • Mz_Opinionated

    ?? It's not funny though. It's scary!

  • hottlanta

    She knows when someone at the moment is trying to take advantage of her n why would they let her read the document like that by herself if she was in bad shape. That is what l am saying n seeing on the tape. No one had 2 read it to her. I have seen enuf ID channel n l smell a rat.

  • hottlanta

    He just lost his case when she was reading those documents alone without any assistance from him to help her understand the documents. Dumb crook 101.

  • hottlanta

    You mean no job having son.

  • Li-Wright

    Me too. All I can do is exercise, eat right, stay healthy, exercise exercise. Read read read. And trust there's somebody in my family who will care enough to make the right decisions.

  • Victorious82

    She can still read. No one said she was deaf, dumb and blind.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That's good that you have that. A lot of seniors won't have family who'll be there... or the ones who are there aren't competent or trustworthy. Some relatives in that situation are just watching the person's dollars, waiting for them to kick the bucket so they can get heir hands on their money. We all know money brings out the worst in people.

  • Kayke

    No. I mean manager. Her son not having a job doesn’t make him an abuser. If she needs someone to manager her daily affairs due her dementia, how can her word be taken as gospel against her son. Whoever released this video has alterior motives and wants public opinion on their side.

  • hottlanta

    No she can comprehend. He just messed up his tape when she said l didnt give you permission to handle my affairs now thé camera is off n we gotta go.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    chile ....... nerves was shot to hell

  • TransMichelle

    LOL

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Could be. Or maybe the manager has reason to believe the son has bad intentions, and this is his way of getting the word out. Some managers are very protective of their clients like that.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    It's sad. Very sad.
    But I don't want to check out any earlier than 93.

  • Victorious82

    the son isn’t the one recording. The manager was recording her while reading the documents in an attempt to get some sort of evidence.

  • CaramelDream

    I took care of my husband's grandma with Alzhemier's and one minute she would be cool then the next she is accusing us of trying to kill her, take her money and her house. Sometimes just looking at my husband would set her off into a rant about his mother and accusing her of all kinds of things. She tried to abuse my grandson and even threatened to set the house on fire. This is was THE MOST difficult time of my life. It's just no winning.

  • Chicagowise

    I'm not afraid of getting old. I can handle the wrinkles, the sagging, the bags, the gray hair, plumbing issues (erectile dysfunction), unexplained aches and pains, and ultimately... death. But at no point during my journey into the great nothingness, do I want lose my ability to mentally defend myself. That is my greatest fear!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Stay Active! My buddy didn't check out til 102. She didn't start having problems until she was 100-101 because she went everywhere...church, sr. citizen center, hospitals, shopping, nursing homes, out to eat, trips...

  • Dasright

    I logged in just to comment the same. We dealt with it with my great grandmother. I felt so sad for my grandmother . The great accused my grandma of starving her when I know that wasn't the case at all. Their minds are in and out. Because of what we experienced, I cant say for sure her son is doing her wrong at al .

  • Chicagowise

    Thus far, I've had two relatives who were diagnosed with schizophrenia. Textbooks say, it generally shows up in your teens, but both relatives were in their 50s and 60s when the disease started to ravage their minds. My aunt called the police because she said, she was sexually assaulted in her home. When the police arrived, she frantically explained that her neighbor assaulted her through the wall!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    They need a social worker to assess the situation and provide resources to the family.

  • hottlanta

    My heart goes out to her bcas l remember her brother was involved in this jim jones type cult. They were extreme. They cut off their penis n when they died they put a purple triangle cloth to cover their bodies in twin beds. It was weird to see all of that on camera.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    My great aunt w/dementia started watching football...in her 90s. She liked the aggression.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    YES!

  • hottlanta

    They just blew it.

  • dontgetblocked

    She has dementia. It's possible she flipped out on him. Of course, it makes the news.

  • Shamwow

    Read books and complete puzzles. Exercise and find ways to keep the mind going. I would also not want this fate. So sad.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Thanks ?? ?

    Something needs to shake. It’s so painful to watch.

  • TheOwley

    Yeap. Things you can do is eat lots of green veggies, specially broccoli sprouts. Force your mind to work everyday and problem solve. Read mystery novels and try to figure out who done it.

  • TheOwley

    Two things need to happen starting with the intervention of family court. She already has been evaluated and diagnosed dementia. There is no cure and the symptoms can get worse. Screaming and falsely accusing others is not unusual.

    Secondly, a judge can assign a conservatorship under court scrutiny or review. He can't use her money unless he is paying a service to care for her. Also regular check in visits to ensure she's OK. In the end he will inherit everything.

    What are the bad intentions? What's in it for the manager? There should be nothing, zero, nada, unless she wrote him in her will and he has to wait like everyone. Accusing the son in these hard circumstance is unfair. Also if your movie star sick parent is going down hill, you will step in to ensure others don't take advantage of them.

  • Witch

    Becky gone inherit all that money. I do not want a son . BM seem to be at war with BW including their mothers .

  • TheOwley

    I had a relative who refuse to get out of the car after getting home. It was no dice cajoling her to get her out. Dinner is getting cold, gotta use the bathroom, nothing.

    After sitting there for a long time two burly neighbors came over on request to help get her out. The were warned to get her out no matter what she says. She screamed on top of her lungs like she was getting assaulted. Onlookers wondered what the heck was going on.

    After they sat her on the lazy boy she calmed down, apologized to the neighbor for all the screaming, and thanked them on their way out. It was scary as heck.

    I'm an onlooker here with Ms. Nichols. We don't know the circumstances.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    1. There should have been welfare visit IMMEDIATELY, as they would have if she were white!

    2. Dementia is unfortunately, so prevalent. Her son should have no problem going to court to gain conservatorship with her doctor (s) diagnosis and prognosis, medical records, etc. for her care plan.

    3. Why would anyone (son or manager) ask a person with dementia to voluntarily sign away their authority. It makes him look suspect.

    4. Does she have a will, and if so, who is beneficiary?

    She has Dementia, and her behavior is very common, but the son is suspect IMO!

    I’ve seen people gain conservatorship (estate) or power of attorney (medical decisions) without a fight, and doctors looking out for their patient’s best interest working with family members!

  • Ayeola George

    both my grandmothers have dementia... its a real struggle to care for anyone with this disease. I did my best with my maternal grandmother but had to admit her to a care facility last year.

  • Chipswife

    I agree! my Father n law had dementia and this is horrible disease that can make even the sweetest people turn violent. I mean people can completely turn into a different person and then go back temporally to the sweet loving person and not remember a thing. God Bless them both! because being a caregiver is a hard job and watching this disease take over your parent is heartbreaking. but im wondering why not go to court and let the judge decide who's the conservator. it does make it look a lil shady

    Damn, what happened to you along the way?

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Hell the son could very well be trying to protect his mother from her “handlers” this video/audio is one sided.

  • Andrea Williams

    Good Morning Nancy.......How have you been? I have missed you AND your wit. Lol, I still remember how you cut up on that Wendy Williams story. It is me your slip wearing/falling down around the ankles friend. How is it going? I hope that all is well. This is so sad. He does need to be kept away from her. There is nothing worse than a family member taking advantage of an older person who is mentally challenged for whatever reason. I hope that he gets nothing too. Enjoy your day ma'am.

  • Yoni7

    The Hale Bop Comet cult folks that died in that mansion in California? Some guy I went to high school with, his mom died in that cult.

  • Yoni7

    Yep. They had all shaved their heads. I remember that.

  • Yoni7

    Hale Bop Comet or Heaven's Gate too. I knew they thought the Comet was going to hit the earth.

  • Yoni7

    Look under Hale Bop Comet. I know one of the victim's last name was McCurdy.

  • hottlanta

    Wow so sad. That docudrama about jim jones was enuf for me.

  • Yoni7

    I never looked into anything about it afterwards........until now. WOW that just brought back memories. I just read a People article on ALL the victims.

  • Look@m3

    Wow she was beautiful and still is. Never watched the show but she is gorgeous

  • Witch

    Same thing that's happening to all of us BW you just too slow to see it or maybe that perm or weave got you feeling like you close to being a WW so you're under the delusion my sentiments don't apply to you.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    No ma’am, my father was married to my mother (deceased now) my brother has always been respectful to his family, and my husband is wonderful...
    I’m sorry you and your mother had a ruff life, but that shyt doesn’t apply to everybody.

  • Witch

    Good for you. Still don't change nothing.

  • Keekz

    I agree, not enough info to have an opinion. She has dementia, therefore, anything could be going on.

  • Witch

    I'm looking at our situation as a collective/community

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    This is so heartbreaking. That poor woman deserves better then that in her twilight years. She seems very coherent to me

  • Guess Who

    She was so beautiful with regal features. Terrible video.

  • Mirella

    Awful. Hope the LAPD will do its job for once.

  • Mirella

    To me a home is a grave. Elders should stay where they live and someone should come to help them.

  • Mirella

    who protects her?

  • CCW47

    Contrary to the news, she has a god-daughter and her husband that is very close to her and spends time with her .Things are sometimes sensationalized for ratings and it is no follow-up that the news is not showing you, and not beginning just that snippet. I am just saying .

  • onelove

    that's why you have get your affairs in order QUICK!!

  • Chicagowise

    It's a very difficult situation. I feel sorry for anyone who is going through this.

  • onelove

    she is still good looking!!

  • Chicagowise

    My job requires a high level of problem solving. I eat a LOT of veggies, namely spinach and broccoli. Maybe I'll be okay.

  • Chicagowise

    I play piano and guitar. Okay. I guess I'm doing all the right things!

  • TheOwley

    That's a great start.

  • Marion Wright

    ok..as someone caring for a person with dementia, I can tell you that those outbursts with loved ones are very common. Memory is a major issue. And its off/on. So, I'd give the son the benefit of the doubt before trusting a stranger. In any event, medical records and her care providers should be able to confirm her status.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Absolutely! I do the Words With Friends for this very reason, don’t wait on symptoms.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    It is something, we have to process! Try supplements like Ginko, Coconut oil, Omega 3 fish oils, learn a language or play a musical instrument.

    I use the free duo-lingo for foreign language learning, mind-strength and as a hobby!

    I saw this guy on PBS “Bright Minds: Memory Rescue” - Daniel Amen, M.D., he offered some interesting memory enhancing techniques!

    I volunteer with seniors, and working NOW will make a difference! Our elders, parents or grandparents weren’t armed with the information, we now have!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    The Son should go through the courts, and obtain her medical records for her best interest. He doesn’t need her permission, if she can’t care for herself.

    Each case or person with dementia differs!

    Someone has to manage her affairs, but there should be some oversight because while she does have dementia, money (even if it’s just a pension) will give a person personal agendas!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Yes, indeed! There is so much elder abuse. I hate it too, or people waiting on someone else’s money to spend!

    I’m not saying the son is abusing her, but trying to force his mother to sign papers without her doctors and attorney present is suspect!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Yes, and some seniors would be better off in a facility than with their own kids or relatives!

    My great uncle had worked good union jobs with great pensions, and his biological son (who we never really knew) came and took him away from his granddaughter, where he was truly cared for to another state, just for his income, and died within months!

    We must Pray and Affirm the outcomes we desired!

    Well, hello there, AW!?

    I can't cut up like I used to 'cause corporate plantation finally blocked disqus/SR.? Still, it's good to see your font, and I hope all is well with you and yours.

  • Andrea Williams

    Morning Nancy.......All is well with us. The plantation gets us all one way or another. So glad I am done with the plantation. I am so sorry about that because I have laughed at YOU! You are funny as hell. I truly do miss your wit. Especially your gif's. I hope that you enjoy your day my friend and I will still be looking for you.

  • Chicagowise

    Thanks for the tips! I'll search for Dr. Amen's videos tonight.

  • Blunted25

    Lol happy I could help. I swear that whole story gave me ptsd. I’ll never forget it. I can’t remember if it was the news or 60 minutes or 20/20 or whatever it was but my overthinking azz thought about that chit for weeks smh
